November classes continue with great project ideas for holiday gift-giving!

I don't know about you, but I'm finding that 2014 is just zipping by! Here we are almost into mid-November and December and holiday gift-giving is just around the corner.

BUT UNTIL THEN -- let's not wish the year away and instead take a look at the marvelous classes that are being offered for the remainder of November. NEW classes and projects include Glass Tile Pendants and Cabochons with Anne Marie Desaulniers; Gio Paz's Wire Crochet Stone Bezel for a Stone Pendant; Pamela Kearns' Boho Bangle; and Stacking Metal Rings with Liz Reynolds. Crochet enthusiasts can join Bonni Poch to learn how to crochet with beads in Bead Crochet 101!

Of course we have some great returning classes too including Angela's Knotted Bezel Pendant and her Soutache: Creating a Statement Focal classes. Maria is offering a full-day class to share how to do Embellished Swags to create beautiful necklaces. If you're looking to learn right-angle weave, check out Malliga's Sassy Sparkling Sliders class! Anne Marie is leading a two-day class in Intuitive Bead Embroidery - a great way to 'tell a story' in a fun and relaxing way. Jenn Jevons is teaching all about working with metal clay in her Introduction to Art Clay Silver class. And there are still more classes!

Let's not forget Iris Rogers Melamed's classes: Hot Connections: Layering Metals and her Hot Connections 1: Intro to Soldering classes. By the way, I know that Iris is busy creating new class projects for 2015 to further stretch your soldering skills! If you haven't taken a soldering course but want to do work with sterling metals, you will need to take the Intro to Soldering class first! If you have soldering projects on the go and want some help from Iris, then come on out to Open Metal Studio: Soldering!

If you are a metal clay enthusiast, then come on out to Open Metal Studio: Metal Clay! Jennifer Tough leads the session and will share tips and techniques working in with various metal clays. Note: sign-ups for our open metal clay sessions have been sparse this year -- if you want the sessions to continue, we need to hear from you!
